Where are the 4lb + Tench hiding?

I decided to take advantage of the drop in temperature that we were having this week by heading to the Sluice and targeting Tench. I was rods in by around 6pm I fished on 2 rods and used hair rigged sweetcorn as bait. I had my first fish after around an hour, a decent Tench of 3lb 10oz. I had to wait until after sunset for my next fish. I had another 3 Tench in total, the biggest of the bunch was 3lb 12oz. So the elusive 4lb barrier has yet to be broken for me so far this season, I've had a good stamp of 3lb + and since June 16th I've landed 14 Tench in total, not a bad tally. Alan caught his PB Tench tonight a good fighting fish of 3lb 9oz. Well done mate!

Good fish but not quite a 4lb
